Located by the beach,in Malindi town.A guide will quickly take you through the history of the area and the construction of the pillar itself.good to note is the public beach just down the road,white sandy beach and clear waters,perfect for morning/afternoon walks.there are lots of eateries around with amazing local cuisine.entry is Kes.100 only for the citizens (free for drivers!!). Opens by 6am,closes at 7pm.Extreamley friendly locals.Beautiful location.☺

When we were on vacation in Malindi, we were staying next door to this site so we decided to visit. The visit was nothing great as the place needs some upgrades. The interest was the age of this monument.

Visiting the pillar sounded like a great idea. I however felt there was really nothing much to do once I got there!

The history behind the pillar is amazing but if you visit only this site, 500KES is too much. However, you have to know that the guide, Malindi Museum and Portuguese chapel visits are included to your ticket. With this, the price is very reasonable. We had a great time!

King Edward was knowledgeable ofcthe history. It was very interesting for me. The cost is based on resident, citizen, noncitizen..but it included entrance into 2 museums.
